Big cities drive job ad growth

1:35 pm on 9 September 2013

The Seek website says it advertised nearly 91,000 jobs in the four months to the end of August, nearly 8000 more than in the first four months of this year.

The growth has been driven by increases in the nation's two largest labour markets, Auckland and Wellington, where adverts were up 12% and 10% respectively.

The biggest growth was a 35% increase in design and architecture jobs, followed by a 23% hike in banking and financial services jobs.
